Eddie Van Halen Signed CD Cover Album Finish What You Started Promo – COA BASGo Back
Out of stock
“Finish What Ya Started” is a song by Van Halen taken from their 1988 album OU812. Despite the album being seemingly complete, Eddie Van Halen came up with the riff at 2 in the morning and went down to his then-neighbor Sammy Hagar to show it. Hagar let Eddie in, and the two played guitars in his balcony until they had a completed song. Once Eddie left, Hagar decided to write the lyrics despite being late at night. The theme wound up being unfulfilled sex, summed up by Hagar as “blue balls”. In the song, Eddie recorded his guitar part on a Fender Stratocaster plugged direct into the studio mixing console. The song is one of only two Van Halen tracks featuring Hagar playing a rhythm guitar part, which he played on a Gibson acoustic.
Presented is a “Finish What Ya Started” Van Halen CD which is a promotional copy. The cover was autographed by Eddie Van Halen in black felt tip (“8-9”). This originates from a promotion director at KOMP Radio here in Las Vegas. The famous rock star signed the CD cover back in at one of their events.
